    Is that a serious question? Of course it's that good.

    yes it really is that good and no it's not actually THAT mindfuck if you read up a little on some analysis on it

    also I watched a clockwork orange and it wasn't near as good as 2001 imo but still very good

    Did you have to read an analysis to understand the film?

    the basic storyline is basically easily comprehensible but to understand the deeper meanings and some of the subtleties I found reading up on it a bit greatly increased my appreciation of the film

    although some of the stuff out there is bullshit lol

    It's not one of Kubrick's best works but it is still somewhat of a cult classic which is why I fucking love the movie haha. You really need to read the book to fully comprehend what it truly is about and all, which if you have spare time, I'd recommend picking up a copy of the book or even looking on Amazon for a e-book version then re-watching it to find some of the hidden meanings. It was something that I would expect wouldn't live up to 2001, but Malcolm McDowell's character is genius.

    From what I can recall from the book compared to the film:

    The 9th Symphony is Alex's favorite song because it is the song that practically helps him "tap into his evil". By this, I mean, whenever he listens to it, he is fantasizing about horrible images of violence and murder. After reading the book, you don't get the same feeling, but the general overview of it all is simply because Alex DeLarge is a sociopath. That's why when he goes through the Ludivico Technique in the film, they flashed the same images on the screen with the 9th, he gets sick. It's not because of the images and all, it's because of the injections that were giving him during his stay at the institute.

    That's just my take on it, you might have something different, but I think it should be correct.
